two choices. you can either use that money to reduce the deficit which is a la laudable objective so we don't discredit that as an objective or use it for one time expenses. what you can't do is lower rates as if the one time savings is genuine forever because you would in the next period of time be losing revenue. that's why the president proposed pairing business tax reform with an infrastructure initiative. i think there is the basis there where you've seen proposals on both sides that have elements of agreement. i think that it's something the more we talk about across party lines and with each other the more we have an opportunity to get something important done. >> very good. senator thune. >> thank you, mr. chairman. secretary lew, nice to have you here. welcome back. i also want to welcome our new chairman and really look forward to working with him. as chairman wyden mentioned we worked together on a number of issues, digital goods and digital trade and a letter we spearheaded by 33 senators for charity and tax reform. we believe it's very strongly the importance of encourag

needed to restore fiscal responsibility and reduce the deficit as part of the quote unquote balanced approach. however we need to look at the facts. let's consider the deficit reduction that has occurred since the high deficit watermark achieved in the school year 2009. from the deficit of over $1.4 trillion in net year the deficit fell to a still high $680 billion in fiscal year 2013. of the $736 billion in deficit reduction, $670 billion came from increased revenue and only $66 million came from reduced outlays so in terms of budget realizations rather than promises for the future less than 9% of the deficit reduction between 2009 and 2013 came from reductions in spending. the vast majority came from increased revenue yet remarkably in the face of that history the administration's insatiable desire for higher taxes leads it to propose more tax hikes along with even more spending. put simply the tax hikes envisioned in the president's budget are not what our struggling economy needs. unfortunately while having pledged to focus like a laser on jobs this administration decided over th

american people it would be different this time. >> i will. the worst budget deficit under george bush happened in his last term in office. that's when nancy pelosi was speaker of the house. budget ra $450 billion. president obama blew through those deficits. he had in excess of trillion dollar deficits year after year. what the republicans were able to do in the house is not continue that level of trajectory. has spending gone up? it absolutely has. but the level has slowed down and -- >> i get the feeling, congresswoman, maybe not you in particular, a lot of your party are giving up the fight and keeping the powder dry and hoping at the end of the year pick up more seats in the house and maybe take the senate and you bet you that will be the time when republicans get serious. but is that a lot to hang your hat on? >> well, what we need to hang our hat on is boosting the labor force participation rate. we're at the lowest level ever for anyone over age 16 actually having a job in the labor force and in a full-time capacity. that has to change. and unfortunately the president's budget

of the grand bargain with house speaker john boehner, and if you look at the deficit, it's been cut by more than half in 2009, the fastest deficit decline over a sustained period since world war ii, so would you acknowledge some progress is being made? >> yeah, i think it's a great point. if you look at the numbers, looks like quite a bit of progress has been made and the deficit has come down very quickly. that, of course, comes after a large rampup in the deficit where it grew by 800% before those four years, and i think more troubling is if you look at the nation's debt, where our debt levels are twice as large as they've been historically and are at historic highs and that's where the trouble is. while we've done a lot of deficit reduction, we've done it in the wrong way. we've focused on, i think, inadvertently through congress not being able to pick our policies on short-term measures that came out of the budget, which isn't where the problem is. what we should be doing is trying to replace those savings that came from the sequester that aren't as useful or long-term with more

deficit? because we all know nothing animates the republican party more than reducing the deficit. what's that you say? oh, it would increase the deficit by $74 billion over 10 years. impossible. of course, this bill is not going to become law. it is very instructive as a reminder that any actual commitment to legislating our complex business an teen health insurance regime will help create disruptions. the republican strategy to kill obama care has been to point to the disruptions it has created and it may create and say the end of the world is nye. if they ever got around to implementing their own plan, that would have its own disruptions. this friday, house majority leader eric cantor will meet with leaders to work on putting together what will be billed as the house republican alternative to obama care. here's my prediction. he could come out of that meeting with two dozen alternatives, but the republican party will actually get behind exactly none of them. not in any real way. that would mean grappling with the reality of reforming health care, and not just throwing stones fr

timing shifts to pay for permanent rate cuts. it could increase deficits in the second decade. >> i think it will be the opposite. it will generate more revenue. it will add $700 billion in new revenues to help us pay down the debt. i believe, spending cuts can get us to a balanced budget. >> you think by the second decade it will raise revenues because of the dynamics. >> in the first decade. >> you drew a parallel to the 1986 tax reform under president reagan. one of the differences is that under that measure, the earned income tax credit for the poor was vastly expanded. under this proposal it would be cut back. a woman making a minimum wage of $17,000, she will lose $2000 in 4-5 years. should the poor have to pay the burden? >> they do not. everyone making up to $100,000 sees a tax cut. and, average family takes home -- >> that is cut back a little bit. shouldn't that be expanded rather than cut back? >> it is not. in my view, it was supposed to offset the payroll tax. unfortunately it has gone beyond that. it is refocus back on making sure a roll taxes taxes are offset. it is phased

program which is 24 billion in deficit spending. will this legislation put us further into the deficit? >> no, not at all. in fact, this bill, unlike the senate version which, you know there was a lot of discussion over the senate version, this bill is actually 100% paid for, and, generates about $165 million, according to the cbo, of revenue over five years. so it pays for itself. it is not a tax because it, it pays for itself only for those within the national flood insurance program. so if you're not in a flood zone and you don't have flood insurance, this doesn't affect you. but if you are in the flood insurance program and your primary residence you will pay a user fee to pay in the program of $25 a year. very reasonable. that will pay for the program. gerri: i got it tell you, 200 million over five years? that doesn't do anything over4 billion in debt the program is already n how will we pay that off? >> well it is still better than nothing. had we done nothing, there wouldn't be 165 million toward that debt. that is number one. second thing that number is not completely

americans. at a time when the deficit is cut in half this allows us to meet our obligations to future generations without leaving them a mountain of debt. to the balance in congress but it also builds up on that progress with what we are calling an opportunity, growth and security initiative, that invests in our economic priorities in a smart way that is paid for with smart spending cuts and closing tax loopholes that right now only benefit the well-off and the well-connected. i will give you an example. right now the tax system provides benefits to wealthy individuals who save after they have amassed multimillion dollar retirement accounts. by closing that loophole we can help create jobs and grow the economy, and expand opportunity without adding a dime to the deficit. we know that the country that wins the race for new technologies will win new jobs so this creates 45 high-tech manufacturing hubs where universities and businesses will work for groundbreaking technology for new jobs in america. part of the reason we're here today is because education has to start at the earli
